Admit it, everyone has wanted to be part of the Braverman clan at some point.

Not because they had it all together – because they definitely didn't. They were far from perfect and didn't always see eye to eye, but the love they shared with one another was genuinely beautiful.

There wasn't a school play or family dinner that a Braverman missed. So, of course, everyone had to come together for Hank and Sarah's wedding on Thursday's series finale – even Haddie (Sarah Ramos), who hadn't been in an episode since coming out to her parents in season 5.

Jake Gyllenhaal may not be making up with ex-girlfriend Kirsten Dunst anytime soon, but he is getting a second chance at success with his 2001 indie flick Donnie Darko, whose director's cut is now in theaters. "It's really a great feeling," Gyllenhaal, 23, told us recently about the movie's re-release. "Something about this movie was always very close to me. I always felt like it would find itself. I was surprised when it didn't at first, because I really feel that it speaks to and has spoken to a lot of people and it's come back in the right way. I feel like my instincts are always right, whether they're immediately rewarded, or whether down the line they are, they always seem to be right somewhere, so it's just proof." Next up for Jake (currently filming Brokeback Mountain with Heath Ledger): Proof, with Gwyneth Paltrow, due later this year.
